Hello to all,

What is the different between Apache CXF and JBoss WS. As far as i know, metro stack is the competitor to Apache CXF. What is the purpose of Jboss WS.

Thanks.

There are any number of implementations of the JAX-WS API, Axis2, Apache CXF, JBossWS and Metro being the better-known ones. The differences will be in performance, tooling, documentation, support, conformity to standards etc.

Finally, I understood the JBoss WS and Apache CXF are also one of the reference implementation of JAX-WS.

Thanks.

Not quite - Metro is the reference implementation of JAX-WS, the others are just implementations.
